Experienced Subcontractors

Recognizing the inevitable peaks and valleys in project workflows—and the reality that the scope or timeline of a project can morph over time—we work with experienced subcontractors to efficiently handle larger projects. This approach is generally far less expensive for the client because it doesn’t incur the overhead expenses of a traditional multi-person firm.

We work closely with each client from the get-go to make sure we’ve got the right team in place to deliver superb work on time and within budget.


We offer just about any service where science meets communication.

  • Writing & Editing for Lay and Scientific Audiences
  • Strategic Communications Consulting
